"The Sabbath Recorder", Vol 88, No 19, p 607, May 10, 1920.

Deacon John Greene Allen was one of Alfred's oldest and most respected citizens. He was born in the year 1837, in Alfred, N. Y., and passed on to the other world April 20, 1920.

He had been failing in strength for several months, but his last sickness was very brief. At the age of sixteen he was baptized by the late Nathan V. Hull, and has been an honored member of the First Seventh Day Baptist Church of Alfred for about sixty-seven years; and prominent in the community business life.

That he filled such positions as the following, shows the measure of confidence placed in him by his fellow citizens: school teaching; for forty-two years a deacon of the church; church treasurer; president of the Board of Trustees of the Union High School; a charter member of the Loan Association and one of its directors; a bank director; and the president and general manager of our cemetery association.

Thoroughness, a great evenness of spirit and action, industry, integrity, sociability and great friendliness, were among his many good qualities. The widow and a son, Nathan Frank, of Ann Arbor, Mich., survive the husband and father.

The funeral services were held at his late home on the afternoon of April 22, conducted by Acting Pastor A. E. Main. Two beautiful pieces were sung by Messrs. V. A. Baggs, Henry Pieters, Curtis F. Randolph and Paul E. Titsworth. Burial was in the Alfred Rural Cemetery, in the care of which he had long taken such great interest.
